How can I get to Messe Frankfurt?

By car: 
Getting to Messe Frankfurt is possible by taking the motorway or directly through the city of Frankfurt. Please follow the overhead signs leading to ‚Messe Frankfurt‘. The signs will guide you to the fairgrounds on the shortest route. 

The "Rebstock" multi-storey car park offers sufficient parking during large trade fairs. A free shuttle service is available to take you to the exhibition grounds. More information is available on the corresponding fair homepage.

By public transportation (U-bahn/S-bahn): 
The underground station below the Central Station provides fast direct access to the exhibition grounds with the S-Bahn suburban trains and U-Bahn underground trains. 

From Frankfurt Central Station you can get to the exhibition grounds... 
... with the U-Bahn underground line 4 (in the direction of Bockenheimer Warte) one stop to "Festhalle/Messe" and from there to the City Entrance. 
... with the S-Bahn suburban train S3 (in the direction of Bad Soden), S4 (in the direction of Kronberg), S5 (in the direction of Bad Homburg/Friedrichsdorf) or S6 (in the direction of Friedberg/Groß Karben) to the second stop, the S-Bahn station "Messe", then go to the "Torhaus" entrance. 
... with tram lines 16 and 17. You can reach the tram stop by going out the main exit of Frankfurt Central Station and crossing the station forecourt. The destination, "Festhalle/Messe" (City Entrance) is the third stop. 
... on foot in ten minutes along Düsseldorfer Strasse via Platz der Republik and Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage. The pyramidal top of the Messeturm tower makes it easy to find your way. The City Entrance through which you will be entering the exhibition grounds is just a few steps away. 

By taxi: 
All taxis in Frankfurt are instructed to drop you off at the Galleria entrance level 1.
